Rapid Prototyping Seminar being held at Rolls-Royce Factory of the Future

03 April 2010 ...

3T RPD Ltd has enjoyed ongoing success with their Rapid Prototyping/Manufacturing Seminars that are regularly held at their manufacturing site in Newbury, Berkshire, enabling a vast number of companies to benefit from learning about their innovative manufacturing techniques.

They are now delighted to announce that they will be hosting the Seminar at the Rolls-Royce Factory of the Future in Rotherham on Wednesday 12th May 2010. In conjunction with the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre with Boeing, the full-day event will explain and demonstrate the applications, opportunities and benefits of using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) throughout all stages of the product life cycle.

The use of Rapid Prototyping technologies by engineers, architects and designers is rapidly becoming the norm rather than the exception, revolutionising the speed at which products can be brought to market. And with new opportunities for low volume production, Rapid Manufacturing is becoming a reality for many industry sectors. So it’s essential to have sufficient knowledge to make the most of what these technologies have to offer … and 3T’s Seminar will help to get you on the right track.

The Seminar will demonstrate how SLS and DMLS technologies enable the cost-effective, fast and accurate production of durable and complex components, whilst negating the investment in conventional tooling. 3T’s technical experts will be available to give advice on specific projects or help with any data issues or questions, and topics covered will include:-

  • Understanding SLS and DMLS to get the most out of them
  • The benefits you can achieve from the technologies
  • Applications that SLS and DMLS are good for, and those that they’re not!
  • Constraints and opportunities
  • Materials and applications
  • Designing for the SLS and DMLS processes
  • Making sure your CAD data is of good quality
  • Production opportunities

There is a registration fee of £45 per delegate payable to 3T by cheque or credit card within 7 days of registration, and bookings can be made online by visiting the Seminars section at, by contacting Lynn Painter on 01635 580284. Members of the Advanced Manufacturing Forum (AMF) can attend free of charge.
